Date 2nd Dec 21
Nights 10 Nights

Fly from the UK and arrive in Dubai where you will be transferred to the port to board Nautica for your ten night cruise.
2
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Your Arabian adventure begins in Dubai, the world's fastest-growing global city with a vibrancy and a majesty all of its own. You’ll find all kinds of wonderful modern attractions here, including, at 2,722 feet, the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, plus cutting-edge bars and nightclubs, a man made island in the shape of a giant palm tree, and unparalleled shopping opportunities.
3
Khasab, Oman
One of the hidden gems of The Middle East, Oman will have you captivated from the moment she appears on the distant horizon. From the moment you sail into Khasab you will immediately be greeted by a striking Arabian military fort bewitching the harbour skyline enchanting you into to romance of the area. Scuba dive in the crystal clear waters surrounding the area or take a boat trip into the Fjords of Arabia, experiencing the breathtaking coast that is known as 'the Norway of the Gulf' and see if you can even spot a pod of dolphins playing nearby.
4
Fujairah, United Arab Emirates
Fujairah is an emirate on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates overlooking the Gulf of Oman. This place is best known for its beaches and the stunning backdrop of the Al Hajar Mountains. In the south, the city of Fujairah is home to the towering white minarets of the impressive Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The reconstructed 17th-century Fujairah Fort with its round and square towers and the ancient Al-Bidya Mosque are amazing sights to see too. You can also indulge in retail therapy at the emirate's first shopping mall, Fujairah City Centre Mall.
5
Muscat, Oman
Muscat, unlike a lot of her Arabian cousins, has managed to retain a scene of authenticity to the old ways. Where her more notable cousins have arrived into the 21st century with a skyline dominated by skyscrapers, shopping malls and hotels, Muscat has retained a lot more of her traditions and values of old. It is this aspect that allows her to captivate guests time and time again. Sail into the preserved historical waterfront and experience the traditional architecture of this calming seascape, hike through the terracotta coloured mountains or even visit the old town and discover the traditional souk and spice markets.

Bahrain
Bahrain comprises more than 30 islands in the Persian Gulf. Step ashore in the modern Bahrain capital of Manama to explore the Bahrain National Museum and shop for souvenirs at Bab al-Bahrain bazaar.
